Smalldog has a refurb deal for $205 coming up but it's a windows version.

How exactly does it differ from the Mac version?
thanks

According to the Apple iPod FAQ, you can reformat a Windows iPod and update the firmware to work with your Mac. After this, you won't be able to turn it back into a Windows iPod. Also, your new "Mac" iPod is not supported.

Actually, using free techniques detailed on iPodLounge (great site) and others, you can indeed convert Mac iPods back to Windows.
